No, North America you aren’t going to get Chrono Trigger first. Square Enix covertly moved the release date for Chrono Trigger up one week to November 20. With only four days between the release of Chrono Trigger in Japan and North America there is little reason to import. We’re even getting the limited edition Chrono Trigger music sampler as a pre-order bonus at Gamestop.
